Both Ashwani Shankar and JA Jayant are young musicians who are making waves in the world of Indian classical music. Ashwani comes from the Banaras Gharana, a lineage of musicians known for producing some of the most talented musicians in Indian classical music history. He is carrying forward the 300-year-old family tradition and art of Shehnai playing to new heights. Ashwani's music is a perfect blend of traditional classical music with a modern approach, making it unique and exciting.

JA Jayant, on the other hand, is a young Carnatic Flute exponent who is popularizing the art of flute playing across the globe. He is known for his soulful and melodious playing style, and his deep understanding of the intricacies of Carnatic music. Jayant is also a dedicated teacher who has conducted workshops and masterclasses across the world, inspiring and educating young musicians who are eager to learn from him.

Together, Ashwani and Jayant will perform a Jugalbandhi, a duet performance where they will showcase their skills and talent in a beautiful musical conversation. It promises to be an evening filled with soulful and melodious music that will leave the audience mesmerized.
